Residents in Moray and the Highlands have been told they could be among the worst affected by Storm Ciara, with an expected eight inches of snow left in its wake.
Blizzard conditions are expected on Monday and Tuesday, and ferry services have been rearranged today as the trouble begins. Experts have said it will be the worst storm experienced in the country since 2013.
Met Office forecasters have issued a yellow weather warning which extends until Tuesday – predicting that 80mph winds will cause significant disruptions on road, rail and ferry services across the north-east.
There are also a number of flood warnings in place.
